In designing the CD label, consider this center area of the disc carefully.

Here are a few pointers:

  • Do not print a picture or text over this area without a background color.
  • DVDs are metallized to the center area (approx 22mm).
  • Decide which spec you will use (46, 37, 22 mm) and then lay out the label so the design is well balanced.
  • Our standard spec is 22mm. You can have a free white base of 22mm to 116mm diameter.
  • Custom white areas require an extra film and screen.
  • On reorders after several years, it is possible that the spec could change and new films are required.
